New You Beauty Tip: Use helichrysum essential oil to sooth your troubled skin, naturally.

The healing and revitalizing power of essential oils is endless, and so are the sheer amount of oils to choose from. We wanted to make it easy for you.  Helichrysum oil (hel-i-krahy-suh?m) is a great option for the healing power of wounds, scars, blemishes and dry skin . Helichyrsum is a sweet and flowery essence that is distilled from several varieties of the plant. With a savory scent that has been described as caramel-smoked ham, helichrysum essential oil contains many antibacterial and antifungal properties. Dab 1 to 2 drops on pimples or acne. For the soothing power of rashes, insect bites and sun burns, blend 10 to 15 drops with 1/2 cup organic honey, 1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil and 1 cup of milk. Add the mixture to a warm bath and bask in the relief.
